Action Tutoring Ltd

Volunteer Tutor

Job description

Children from lower-income families are less likely to achieve academically than their better-off peers. Action Tutoring is a charity that works to level the playing field.

We are looking for volunteers to support pupils from disadvantaged backgrounds in maths or English. As a volunteer, you’ll:

  • Work with 1-3 pupils to improve their English and maths, either in-person or online
  • Commit to a 10-20 week programme, for just one hour a week
  • Support either primary or secondary school-aged pupils
  • Use our tutor workbooks to shape your weekly sessions

Good grades improve future prospects, opening the door to a wider range of opportunities. If you enjoy working with children and are passionate about social equality, you can make a tangible difference by volunteering for an hour a week.

What support will I get?

  • Training (a two-hour induction session)
  • In-session support from your Programme Coordinator
  • Tutor workbooks with session plans
  • Travel expenses up to £5 per session
  • A free DBS check

What we are looking for

  • Have or are studying for a degree in any subject (or equivalent work experience)
  • Have at least a B grade at A Level (or equivalent) in a subject related to maths or English
  • Are fluent English speakers with an enthusiasm for the subject they're tutoring

If your qualifications do not match these requirements, we still encourage you to apply and we would love to hear about any other qualifications/training/work experience related to the role.
